Preserve the sweet cherry harvest to enjoy all year. If you, like me, love sweet cherries you probably try to stretch the season. For me that means purchasing as soon as they hit the stores – even at exorbitant prices, and then preserving them as the summer moves on to other stone fruits. In the […]

Sweet Cherries in Honey-Vanilla Syrup

It’s time for Washington State stone fruits again! One of the best things about living in this part of the country is summer stone fruits.

Cherry-Lime Jam Recipe

One year our sweet cherry tree was overladen with cherries. Miraculously we were able to harvest them before the birds and bugs got their fill. I pitted and froze bags and bags of cherries.

We had a bumper crop of cherries from our two little trees this year, and luckily got our share before the birds ate them all! I pitted and froze most of them (the cherries, not the birds 🙂 ) to use in smoothies all winter long. But I couldn’t resist making these brandied cherries for […]
